GS Paper 4: Ethics & integrity
Q.4) India is a country of traditions and festivals having their roots in religion. The District Magistrate along with the Superintendent of Police of the district is supposed to take care of law and order, safety and security of large number of people assembling at such occasions to celebrate. In such a gathering people throng on the river banks for holy bath, competitive burning of the crackers and approaching the deities in a temple from close proximity which often leads to confusion and chaos and sometimes big accidents.
A festival is being organized on a large scale in a big temple in your area. After hearing cases of stampede at religious places and the increasing number of casualities in such cases you are worried about the situation. So you decide to make a prehanded preparedness in order to come out of the situation.
Present a brief map of action and programmes which must be put in place before the day of celebration so that celebration is managed without any obstruction and untoward event.
